"The Adventures of Maisie (aka Maisie)" was a radio comedy series starring Ann Sothern, as under-employed entertainer Maisie Ravier and a spin-off of Sothern's successful 1939-1947 Maisie movie series. It is this OTR program which popularized the 1940s catch phrase "Liiiikewiiise, I'm suuuuurrrre."
Sponsored by Eversharp, the first series ran on CBS from July 5, 1945 to March 28, 1947, airing on Thursdays at 8:30pm during the first two months, then moving to Wednesdays at 9:30pm (1945-46), then Fridays at 10:30pm (1946-47).
From 1949 to 1952, Maisie was in syndication with Pat McGeehan as Eddie Jordan. From 1952-01-11 thru 1953-12-26, Maidie aired on MBS. Bea Benaderet (Kate/Mom on Petticoat Junction) and Elvira Allman portrayed Mrs. Kennedy.

Re:Ad of Maisie!!! Great
OK so I'm new to this Web site, but it's free to join or not to join. The downloads are free or a donation to Paypal or not and you mean to say some body can find some thing to complain about. Sounds like a lady I knew back in '65.
I could not be happier with this web site and especially the AOM programs. I have no idea how much work it took to add them to this web site but thank you! who ever did the work and made them available to me. I can't believe FREE!

Re Maisie Repeats
To reviewer "perister":
I am sorry to hear you feel so strongly about the "repeats" made in the Maisie file.
If you only knew how long it took me to listen to those episodes and (with the the help of Digital Deli Too) put them all in CORRECT order, you more than likely would reconsider your judgement.
Those repeats, some of which (if you listen more carefully to all of the episodes) are re-used scripts. Each file has limited space, therefore not ALL information can be entered. In that case, I must leave it up to the judgement of those downloading the file, whether they want to listen to and keep the re-used scripts, or not.
Hmmmm speaking of which - it appears that in the short time, since I uploaded Maisie to IA, there have been 557 happy campers who have already downloaded the file. The knowledge that this wonderful show will never become extinct, is quite rewarding.
Anyway, thank you for your output. All opinions are valued.

too many repeated episodes
Even with the "repeated at" in the titles of some, there are other episodes that are repeats of previous one. The set needs to be cleaned up.
